Veterinary technician's daily reference guide; canine and feline, 2d ed.

Jack, Candyce M. et al.

Blackwell Publishing


691 pages


Spiral Binding


This guide is designed for trained, practicing veterinary technicians who need a convenient information-packed reference; those in training might also find it useful as a supplement to more in-depth texts. Coverage is amazingly comprehensive, beginning with anatomy and continuing through preventative care and nutrition, diagnosis (laboratory work, imaging, general medicine, emergency medicine); patient care (pain management, wound care, parenteral nutrition); anesthesia (dentistry, surgery); alternative veterinary care; and pharmacology. There's very little narrative text. Information is presented in tables and in boxes focused on skills and techniques. Line drawings and some color drawings illustrate anatomy, and micrographs (from various references) are included as well. The book's physical format is horizontal (12.25x8.75") to accommodate the tables, and the spiral binding allows pages to lie flat.
